Kritik

"Gorgeous. . . . Lahiri gives us the most unusual of self-portraits." -The New York Times Book Review

"Exquisite. . . . Strikingly honest, lyrical, untouched by sentimentality. . . . The most evocative, unpretentious, astute account of a writing life I have read." -Howard Norman, The Washington Post

"As much a work of poetry as prose. . . . Beautiful." -Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Magnificent. . . . [In Other Words] puts one in the company of a beautiful mind engaged in a sustained and bracing discipline." -Los Angeles Times

"Urgent and raw." -O, The Oprah Magazine

"In Lahiri's hands, these essays and stories become an invaluable insight into the craft of writing not as storytelling but as speaking the self into existence." -San Francisco Chronicle

"A quiet coming of age. . . . Lahiri is a master of language." -Time
